1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We provide care and support to both adults and children.  Our services range from personal care, domestic help to shopping and companionship.  We help people with physical and learning disabilities as well as people with conditions such as Dementia and Alzheimers. 

Our aim is to enable people to remain in their home living as independently as possible whilst maintaining their dignity.  We offer good old fashioned service and employ staff who are passionate about delivering an excellent level of care

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

The challenges are recruiting enough quality staff so that we can continue our steady growth.

  • Develop further training courses

    We have just moved into new offices in Clifton Moor and are planning on developing our ground floor into a purpose built training suite.  We will then be able to develop further training courses in house and also carry out further awareness sessions for both our staff and the public
